If you missed our fundraising luncheon in Salem, don’t worry. You are invited to a special Friends of Pimpollo (pronounced pim-poy-o) Cinco de Mayo Celebration at The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 7 p.m.
The event is free of charge (donations will be accepted) and guests will enjoy Oaxacan style food and special guest speakers who will highlight the remarkable transformation our organization has accomplished in the Vicente Guerrero community in Southern Mexico.
The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport has a very special connection to Friends of Pimpollo. Many of their staff members along with some of the staff at The Grand Hotel in Salem, Bentley’s Grill and The Salem Convention Center have been personally involved with our organization for many years and have seen first hand the enormous impact the organization has had on these communities with programs such as:
- Pimpollo Home for Children in Juchitan, Oaxaca
- Vicente Guerrero Community outside of Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
- Oaxaca Kids Can in Vicente Guerrero, Oaxaca
- Education Scholarship Program in Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico
